Soulful Teena Marie will truly be missed. Teena's music was loved by millions. Her music touched the souls of anyone who had the opportunity to listen. She was that "Midnight Soul" to lovers around the world. She could flip the script and turn right around and get you up off your feet with her funky rhythms. She was one of my personal favorites in the music industry and I have always enjoyed the challenge of performing her music. Reminiscing on some of my personal favorites; Out on A Limb, Lovergirl, If I Were A Bell, Square Biz, Tune In Tomorrow, You Make Love Like Springtime, Just Us Two, I'm Still In Love, Ooo La La La, Fire & Desire, Portuguese Love, My Dear Mr. Gaye and my list could go on and on. I pray blessings of peace; understanding and love give some comfort to her family and friends.
a rose is a rose you will always be a rose.
This is very sad news and Lady T will be missed. I have been a fan of her music since I was a little girl. I remember my uncle blasting "Square Biz" and "I Need Your Lovin" from the basement of my grandparents house.
So sad to hear this she had a great voice, now she is with her BUDDY Rick James. R.I.P.
She sure is............
Oh my God! This is unbelievable. The incomparable Lady T is gone! I have followed her and loved her since she came out with Rick. I will miss her so very much. My condolences to her family and especially her baby girl! There will never be another Teena Marie. Take your place in that choir in heaven beside Rick, Luther, Gerald, Michael and all the others that went before.
Lady T you will be missed, I remember when I saw her performing in Arizona and I was a radio personality, she will never be replaced and she will be missed rest in peace lady T. My prayers go out to the family may you find peace at this difficult time.
